LSSBB and Education Level
Ger de Waard, Management Consultant, Netherlands
For LSSBB is normally a HBO or WO degree preferred, as some statistics are required which are taught only at VWO level (wiskunde A) and at HBO and WO level. An LSSBB doesn't make you a HBO or WO educated person, for that you need to attend those institutions/ universities.
However there are HBO’s who offer post HBO training in LSS. I believe Avans Hogescholen and Fontys. Check their sites. A professional educator such as Symbol, UNC, Uva ibis, MKPC, UNC plus delta and many more work with certifying bodies such as IIBLC, ASQ and IASSC.
And these have nothing to do with HBO institutes and Universities. With MBO you can however go to an evening HBO (2-4 years). Maybe that is what you want?
Otherwise: companies should pay you for your expertise and experience and an LSS Belt should be worth something for your pay scale and function/role! I suggest you start looking for another employer as well who sees the benefit of your belt certificate.
